$5,000 GRANTS ARE NOW AVAILABLE!
TEAM for West Virginia Children is pleased to offer 2015 Strengthening Families Mini-Grants. Up to five grants of up to $5,000 each will be awarded for organizations to intentionally broaden, deepen and/or sustain community-level strategies to improve family well-being and healthy child development using the Strengthening Families Protective Factors Framework.
The purpose of the grant opportunity is to support innovative local projects that engage new partners and/or take a community / “place-based” approach to building protective factors among families of young children (infants to age 8). With these funds we seek to promote cross-sector implementation bringing together partners from multiple sectors (early childhood, businesses, faith based communities, health providers, early intervention, mental health, etc.) that touch the lives of children and families – working toward a common purpose that strengthens the presence of Protective Factors in families.
Application deadline is April 27, 2015.
